See? Just pick any show in '85 and listen to 3 in a row and you're guaranteed some mind numbing music. Great choices everyone!

Just to be different 7/2/85. Good 1st set. 2nd set full of miscues but none the less vital. Only indoor show of the tour. Unusual and mysterious Crazy Fingers> Salor> Saint. Wharf Rat was fitting as this was the Pitt "..way down, down ,down by the docks of the city". Major Brokedown breakdown intro false start. It was chilling to hear the first line of the first verse up in the intro key...then it had to fall apart. The Fat Man speaks.

1985 is loaded with highlights, although there was a bit of a ying-yang at work. Which is to say, it was great when you could put the troubling or downright horrible aspects aside.

Here are some I think you missed:

3/25/85 Springfield is raunchy and hot...check out the blistering "Let It Grow".

3/31/85 Portland ME is a rollicking goofy show with lots of great Jerry.

4/4/85 Providence is a fist-pumper, with a She Belongs To Me breakout and "Crazy Fingers" resurrection.

7/13/85 Ventura has an unbelievable Saturday Night>Fire On the Mountain opener and other highlights.

9/3/85 Kansas City is a killer recording.

11/7/85 Rochester is a perennial "Top Five of '85" pick, with a rocking first set and a triumphant Let It Grow> Drums in the 2nd set.

11/10/85 Meadowlands is really entertaining, with lots of nice 1st set performances and an unusual Half Step> Rider to open the 2nd set.

Hope this is useful for ya.
